Living With Subclavian Artery Disease

If you have subclavian artery disease, you may experience weakness or pain in your arm on the affected side, dizziness, or blurred or double vision.

As atherosclerosis can develop in any of the arteries of the body, individuals living with subclavian artery disease should look out for symptoms of shortness of breath or chest pain when being active because this may be a sign of coronary artery disease. If your walking is limited because of leg fatigue, cramping or pain, it may be because of peripheral artery disease (PAD). If you develop these symptoms, talk to your doctor.

If your doctor has decided to monitor the disease, you should tell him or her if you have any worsening or new symptoms. Also your health care professional may check your blood pressure in both arms and conduct ultrasound tests routinely to watch the narrowing in your arteries. These tests would also be done if you have an angioplasty or surgery.
